My daughter has been playing an online game for a couple weeks and now she is glued to the friggin computer, day and night!!!!! This whole situation just got worse!!!! Now if I tell her to get off the computer she flips the hell out and starts crying and freaking out!!!! Now, she has been with her Dad, he plays the game and got her hooked on it. She's back with me now and I have to deal with this crap!!!! She has new "friends" on this game that are female and male, so they say and they are all older than her!!!! I think she has exchanged names and states with a few people!!!!!!! PLEASE HELP, WHAT DO I DO??????????
Added info: daughter is 9 years old and he let her stay on the computer til 1 or 2 o'clock in the morning, unsupervised at times!!!!

Set time limits for the game. A couple hours in the evenings on certain days when you can be nearby to keep an eye on her. Let her throw a fit and stick to the set times.

Remember....if your kids get mad at you, you're soing something right.

Of course she's not going to like it but you're the adult. Set strick time limits/schedule where you can supervise and stick to it. If you stray from it once she will expect it.

Ummmm you are the parent. Set limits. Let her pitch a fit. Tell her if she pitches a fit she will lose a whole day tomorrow of playing privileges.

What game is she playing?

Yep, this. Honestly, OP. If she flips out, then it'll just be longer until she gets it back.

Which game is it? I was hooked on one like that for over 2 years. I'm cured now.
